    My Guinea Pig at a Potato!

    HELP! I don't know how but my guinea pig ate a few bites of a potato and I don't know if that's really bad or just minor. What should I do to make sure she doesn't get sick?

    Dark coloured urine

    I just took my piggies out their cage and put them in the pen so I could clean it out and one of them seems to be peeing a brownish coloured pee. What should I do? Is it anything to worry about? It also seems to be all over their tunnel.

    Help. Neutering guinea pig

    My friend just got some guinea pigs from pets at home, but they were supposed to sell them as both females, turns out one of them is male. Do pets at home take responsibility for this and do they have to pay for the neutering?

    Injured toe.

    I accidentally cut one of my pigs claws too short.. She jerked as I clipped and I think it took off a part of her toe. It bled so much but I rushed to the bathroom and clotted the blood with cornstarch. I feel terrible and physically sick that I did that to her... How do I make her feel better...

    Unhealing Wound

    hi My Guinea pig Ruby cut herself on her left back side in April this year and I took her to the vets who said it looked like she has scraped herself on something and not to worry. Since then it has opened a couple of times so I have washed it and monitored her and it hasn't bothered her...

    Health Checks

    I would like to ask for tips and learn some information on health checks! (Poorly enough I was unaware of what it was until a couple weeks ago.) When I bought my pigs from a pet shop (unaware of rescues at the time) they did not tell me anything of their needs and requirements. So I went off of...

    Teeth And Eating Issues

    I'm really hoping someone can help with this. My little Bentley has been losing weight quickly over the last week or so. I thought it was because we had introduced a new pair of piggies and he was just acting up. Checked his teeth the other day and one was chipped and the other looked way to...

    Is My Guinea Pig Eating Too Much?

    I have a problem... I give my piggie hay worth a day and he finishes it in 30 minutes. Then, he cries out for more food. Please help me, I am worried I might give him too much food. I don't want to overweigh him. My mom says he's fine, but still I am worried. :(
